“Ethology is key to reduce conflicts and enhance enjoyment of humans and animals living and working together ”

I am a dedicated researcher at Department of Biosystems and Technology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden in the area of Animal-adapted housing systems. This research area “Animal-adapted housing systems”, covers a holistic and systematic approach to studying indoor and outdoor animal systems. My specific research focusses on how animals interact with their physical and social environment, and how this can be optimized in terms of sustainability of the production. I am interested in understanding the cognitive and sensory abilities of animals, and I aim to optimize modern animal housing to be motivation-based and safe. Both from an animal and a human perspective. My research unit uses novel solutions and technological tools in the assessment and optimization of animal environments and closely collaborates with other relevant research units to provide in-depth research on the animal system as a whole.
